I know I said the last update was the last update, but I was wrong... this is the last update (I hope) Circumstances beyond their control have forced Joe Atmore (he has to leave the country) and Berk Eratay (he cant get into the country) to miss presenting at MINDvention. They will both be missed and we hope they will be able to return to a future convention.
Both attendee shows are fully booked, thanks to all those who have agreed to share their talents.
Thanks to eagle-eyed Eric Samuel he posted on the Caf The Palace Station has just cut room rates for Nov 8-11. If you are already booked, you may be able to save some fairly significant $$$, and/or upgrade to their better rooms at the same price, by re-booking (even through a 3rd party site) If you call Palace Station directly, use code PZZ194, or if you book on-line, the lower rates should simply show, without the need for the code.

I have adjusted the schedule as below. I am not saying this is the final schedule as my predictive abilities are not what they once were. Keep reading after the schedule as there are also a few other late announcements. Travel well and I am looking forward to seeing you all in about ten days.
PS GO PHILLIES!

Anyone who's coming to Las Vegas for Mindvention is welcome to attend my show at Fitzgerald's as my guest. It's at 9:13pm nightly, but I'll be dark on the 9th. (Hey, I wanna see the Nyman lecture too, y'know!) Just come up to the showroom and tell whoever is at the door that I invited you. http://www.fitzgeraldslasvegas.com/vega ... nment.aspx
Info below from Jeff McBride about the Master Class for Mentalists
Dive deeper into the mysteries of the mind.... by adding this special event to your MindVention experience. Immediately following the MindVention, on November 11, 12 and 13....the adventure continues! Mindvention attendees can get $100 off the tuition by showing your Mindvention registration badge!
The McBride Magic & Mystery School is hosting Eugene Burger, with special guest Ross Johnson and the Mystery School Magi, for a 3 day
A Special Master Class for Mentalists.
WHAT? In response to many requests, we are happy to present our fourth Master Class aimed exclusively at mentalists. Jeff McBride's Master Class is the premier program in contemporary magic where YOU and your performance take center stage in a safe and supportive setting.
At this Special Master Class all of the performances and all of the talks and breakout sessions will be on the subject of MENTALISM. Eugene and Jeff will share their thoughts on Mentalism for Magicians. And our Special Guest for the Class will be ROSS JOHNSON, perhaps the most successful corporate mentalist in the United States.
This is RARE appearance for Ross because he does not write books and rarely speaks to groups of mentalists. We are thrilled to be able to spend several days with him finding out what has made him so successful.

WHEN? November 11, 12 ,13 2009

WHERE? The McBride House of Mystery. Directions will be given to you when you register. We are 5 mins from the strip, and 3 mins from the airport!
The McBride Master Class is limited to a small group of students. Although there is no pressure to perform, many students choose to present their act (or a magical piece they are working on) for one-on-one direction from Jeff and Eugene who are both committed to helping you attain new levels of excellence with your performance of mentalism.
